I've changed the batteries and the typewriter won't print. It looks like the keys are not coming up to print the letter. I thought I properly installled the ribbon but it seems as though the ribbon is not advancing.

What's your problem?keys typed are not the same as what's printed on paper. this after changing the ribbon


First be sure yhe ribbon and L/O tape are not obstructing the print wheel. The wheel will home itself on power up but if it gets interfeared with it won't reset without power off and on.

My olympia electric typewriter is always on capital letters no matter how i unlock the keys/shift...won't go back to small letters.


You didn't give a model but there should be a key that says above or on the front of it caps or caps lock the code and that key should do it.

When typing the letter don't appear


If they don't print until you hit the return key you are in the delay print mode, use the print mode key on the R. side to get out of it. If it isn't printing at all the plastic print solenoid cap is broken. We sell them with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

This can cause the top or the bottom of letters not to print. Likewise on an IBM Wheelwriter, it is possible for the platen itself to be loose which can cause just the top of letters to print. Observe the ribbon lift position and installation. Check the hammer, printwheel, platen,
